Regular Train Trip

Circular 2,5 hr afternoon steam train trip around the city and environs of Tshwane-Pretoria.

Bring your Sunday lunch picnic basket and board our heritage train, surrounded by railway history, for a nostalgic steam train trip around Pretoria, to see the capital city as you never see it from the road. It's like travelling back in time as you sit in our restored coaches and listen to the steady beat of the steam engine at the head of the train.

Due to the train's popularity, this year we plan to be running many Tshwane Xplorer trips to a regular montly schedule -- the last Sunday of every month. This means that you can now set aside many "pay-day" Sunday afternoons for your favourite steam ride! You can book on-line or call Sales on 012 548 4090. You can also book at Computicket and at Checkers "Moneymarket" counters. If you didn't book ahead, take pot luck and come along to the site on day. We will try to squeeze you in if there is space - but beware, available space is limited!

We want to bring our vintage steam train to as wider section of our population as possible, so we are planning to run some special "Xplorers" specially for our younger folk. These trains will run on Friday mornings and depart at 09:30 instead of the normal 13:30. Specially reduced fares will apply on these trains for scholars and their teachers and, provided adults can stand the kids' fun and 'noise' and there is space available, they may travel at special fares too!

Normal departures 13:30 sharp. Arrive back in the depot at about 16:30.
Special schools Xplorer departs at 09:30 sharp, returns at about 12:30.

Planned 2009 running dates:
Tuesday, 16 June 2009 (Youth Day Special)
Sunday, 26 July 2009
Sunday, 30 August 2009
Sunday, 27 September 2009
